WASIIINOTOS , June 13. [ Special Telegram
to the HEI : . ] It Is generally conceded that
the bill cxtendlnji the time for the payment
of the Pacific railroad debts will not bo

Ncbraskans who are taking advantage of
the pre-emption law will ha\o a lowdayslo
operate In. The bill repealing the act will bo
passed by the senate by the middle of this

Mtrxirtr , Juno 13. Ludwlg's deposition
has thrown a gloom over the Bavarian me-
tiopolls. Business Is partially suspended
and many evidences are urcscntliig of the
deep attachment of the people for the unfor

secure the release of Count Itolsteln had the
utmost dllllciilty In gaining access to the
castle , which was surrounded by armed
guards in gieat numbers. The mountain
peasantry wore also muchoVclted and threat
ened to kill the deputation , but after an ex
planation of their haimlcss mission they
wore permitted to enter. Thoyieplaced the
king's servants , placed a strong military cor
don around thecastlo andlotttwo physicians

The managers of the impeachment trill
have been making some sorry revelations for
Itlr. liiown and his deputy during-the past
week. They show that it had been his pra'1-
tico to allow his deputy to examine banks ot
the state , charging S15 or S20 for each exam
ination while drawing a salary from thOHtuto
lor the timeho was absent from Ids of
fice. In some instances lirown himself
made the examinations and took and kept
the fees. His deputy , Stewart , obtained from
this source between thirteen bundled and
fourteen hundiod dollars , in addition to his
regular salary. The trial Is becoming a great
bore , as much so to these on the Inside as to
those outs > lde. The senators who have to
listen to the tiresome arguments of verbose
and tedious counsel are beginning to cry out ,
"How long , oh , Lord , how longl" Already
the printed journal numbeis over 1,200 pages , ,
and the trial is piobably not moio than one-
third through. If the tilal costs the btnto less
than S75jOOJ thy people may think themselves
getting elf eiisv , consldeifng the way the ex
pense is mounting up.

Ing themselves that they aio not obliged to

on the other hand , are exceedingly depressed
over tiielr piospect , as their convention is
called lor tlio liOth of June. Their wisest
leaileis see that they Imvo nude u cieat mis

the date changed to a later time. Theio was
a quiet little conference of piomlnont demo-
ciats in tills city last week , at which this was

do not rel.sli the piospect of being put on the

and Indications now arc that before the end
of. next "week the fore between Chicago and
SI. Paul and Chicago nnd Omaha will be SI ,
or loss. The Uock Island's cut of yesterday
to'compotltlvo'polnls In Iowa and Minnesota
14 ntoio serious than It appears on its face. It
makes rates to nil these itolnls at $4.35 , and
how great this reduction Is Is shown by the
fact1 that the regular rates to some of these
jtoliils worVas high as $15. The new rates
by the Uock Island's Albert Lea route , 84.2o ,
from St. Paul and Minneapolis to Chicago ,
wcropnt In effect this morning. To check-
niato.this action on the part of the Hock Is
land the Milwaukee & St. Paul has decided to
ihnlco n rate of S4.ii" from Omaha to Chicago.
This opens up tlio war both on the east and
west bound business between Chicago and St.
Paul and between Chicago and Omaha , and
will comiKil all roads betvfcon those points to
take a hand In the conflict. The affairs of the
Chicago , St. Louis and Mlsslourl river pas

an asi > ect that it will bo safe to predict an ex

lie Killed Thirty Men Bccanso of Ills
Devotion to Law and Order.
A crp\yd following a rather good-look
ing man around , stopping "when , ho
stoppedlistening as to an ocaclc when ho
turn anything to say , an J all the tiino gap
ing at him in open-mouthed wonder , pro
claimed the fact that an important per-
sbn'ago was in town , writes a Silvorton ,
Col. , ( Correspondent of the New York
Sun."Who is that duck ? " an old miner
"S.Ii-li-h ! " replied a companion ; "that's
Doc'Ilolliday. He's killed thirty mon in
ami there's when he'll
his .day , no tolling
turn. IiiniKolf loose again. "
- Then all hands took another good look
at him , and after lie had passed out of
ilight prfo of the early settlers said :
"Som6 _ of you follows wio | have come
here lately have a very faint idea of
what Uoc Holliday and a tow others like
him lined to do m this country. When
the Jou ran-things down in Arizona no
body dared say his soul was his own , I
remember one time in T'ombslono lie
killed two men in ono night , and tlio next
day ho called u.ion the editor of the paper
and said that , as ho was opposed to sen
sational literature , lie hoped there would
he no undue prominence given to the oc
currences of the evening beforo.
"When the paper came out in the afternoon -
noon it had a three-lino item , saying that
it was understood that two mon had been
found dead on the streets , but that the re
porter had not learned their names. Thu
samu issue had a long editorial article on
the advantages of Arizona as a health
"Not long after tlmt the Doc was in
Tucson for two weeks , and killed faix mon
during that time. Ho would have staid
another week but lie learned that a move
ment was on foot to mob him and ho lull
suddenly. All along tlio southwestern
border for three or four years ho was
robbing and killing almost continually.
When any particular crime threatened to
ruaku troiiblu for him ho would skip over
to .Southern California for a whilo. and
onoo or twluo ho wont to Indian Terri
tory. Ho could bo tried now in any ono
of a half do/.on states or territories and
hanged for murder , but there is no dis
position to press him , as it isremombored
that ' ( ho country was pretty wild in these
days' . "
Another man who had boon a close lis
tener stonuud forward nt this point and
saidr "I fiad a brush with the Doe once in
tho. Calico range , down hack of Kort
I'll in a. Ho ami twenty-live other liorso
and cattle thieves were down there , and
( hey sent word to Iho shurill' that they
were spoiling for a light. That made the
ollicor mad , and so ho got up a posse and
se ( out , I being in the party. When wo
canm on the gang wu saw that they out
numbered u s two to one , and wo con
cluded not to light. As soon as the Dee
saw that wo were sloping ho got mad ,
and , jumping out in front of his party , ho
yelk-d that ho could whip us single-
"He nadn't any nioro than said the
word when lie began firing , and wo ran
like , cowards. Ho Killed three ot our
party , though , before we- got to cover ,
and wo didn't have any anxiety to inter
view him agiin. A littlu while after that
ho left that part of the country , greatly to
the relief of the sheritV , who used to any
th.\t \ ho never could bo chief when the Doe
was iiround. "
While this speaker was giving his ex
perience ; . the Dee himself had drawn
nigh- and , after listening to the con
clusion of the story , he observed : "Whon
any of you fellows have been hunted ,

little thing that happened down In Tomb

hard crowd there , of course , mid 1 hap
pened in. 1 thought 1 saw a chauco to
make n liltlo money , nnd so I opened a
gambling-house. Things went nlontf nil
right for a timobut at length some of the

that sort of thing couldn't go on in any
well-regulated community , and then , just
to restore order , I gave it to a counlo of
thorn , That settled thu whole trouulo. I
was in Tombsono siv months after that ,
and never had another diliioulty. It has
boon that way wherever 1 have boon. I
never shoot unless I have to.
"Down on the border 1 hud two or thrco
little scrapes , but they didn't amount to
much. A party of dnmkon greasers
came climbing over us ono niclit , and I
Inul to lix one or two , nnd at another
time I Iiad a light with a room full of
them , and started a graveyard there , but
it had to bo done in tlio interest of peace.
I claim to have boon n benefactor to the
country. Kvory crime that occurs in anew
now settlement is always laid on some
one or two mon. 1'vo found out tiino
and again that 1 had boon charged with
murders and robberies when I wasn't
within 500 miles of thu placo. Down in
Arizona once the coroner nnd most of
the members of his jury had killed nnd
robbed n tnan , and when they sat on the
job himself. I've known army
who couldn't tiiul vouchers for all
their property to put in a pica
that Dee Holliday had stolen it ,
when I never was inside their lines.
"If you take tlio trouble to examine a
good many of thu crimes that I am
charged with , j-ou .will Und that when I
have boon charged with murder I have
always been a long ways ofl never near
at hand. That looks odd , don't it ? lint
it is just because I didn't do it. I'vo
been in nearly all these towns
since , nnd nobody says anything about
arresting me. simply because they have
no caso. The claim that I make is that
some few of us pioneers arc entitled to
credit for what wo Imvo douo. Wo
have been the forerunners of govern
ment. As soon as law and order were
established anywhere we never had any
trouble. If it hadn't boon for mo and a
few like mo there never would have boon
any government in some of those towns.
When I have done any shooting it has al
ways been with this end in view. "

A Family Fond ,
A family feud tlmt hns existed for sev

families was the cause o ( iirow on Satur

nnd may provo fatal to MM. F. T. Shin-
rock. The afl'uirtook place at 8o'clock on
Saturday evening nnd shortly nftcr tlmt
hour Ollleor O'Hoylo marched into the
central police station , having in charge
Mrs.\Vm. Mullmll who was alleged to Irnvo
nssuultcd .Mrs. Shiurock. Mr. Mulhall
nnd Mr , Shinrock uppcrtrod at the jail nt
the sumo tinio , and witli Mrs. Mulhall
opened n threo-cornerpil lire upon Judge
Stonborg concerning the particulars of
the case. Thuir stories wore widely
flincrcnl nnd conflicting Mrs.
Mullmll was placed under bonds by Judge j.
Stonborg for trial this morning. .
TIM : MuuiAu/i' siouv.
Mr. Mulluvll appeared ut tlm llr.r. olliro
yesterday afternoon and desired the pub
lication of his side of the story , llo ml-
milted that there had been trouble be
tween the families for several years mid
that ho and his family were under bonds
to keep the pence , llo said that on Sut-
uriliiy evening Mrs. Mulhall und her
youngest daughter was standing in their
yard near the gate talking when Mrs.
Shlnrook and a neighbor's girl cnir.o
ntong , and the Mullmll girl spoke to Mrs.
Shinrock'd companion. At this Mrs.
Shinrook started after the Mullmll girl
and chased her into the back yard whnro
she ciuighl her and wus pounding her
over the head when Mrri. Mullmll came
to the rescue. When Mra. Mulhall came
up Mrs. Shinrock struck her over
the head with n ball bat ami knocked
her down , Mrs. Mulhall s daughters
then came out nnd u free for an light
ensued , in which Mrs. Shinrock received
a blaelc eve and fainted awav. Then the
friends came to tlio rescue and Airs.
Mullmll was turned over to the police.
Mr. Mulluill's story , us outlined above
was cmbelished with an acuount of
numerous assaults which ho alleged had
been unulo upon his family by the Shin-
Tin : sniNiiocic's sion.
At 2117 Nicholas street , next door to
Mulhall's residence lives the family of F.
T. Shiurock. A Ur.u reporter called at '
the home ycsterduy afternoon to loam
the Collier side of the Saturday
evening row. Ho found Mrs. Shiurock
confined to her room from the results of
her injuries. Her right eye was swollen
shut and her head cut and bruised in sev
eral places. Her statement was that she
started out for a little walk on Saturday
evening and as she passed the gate
Mrs. Mulhall struck her over the head
with a ball bat and kuoekod her down.
Mrs. Mulhall and daughters then
dragged her to the rear of
the house and the daughtera
each held one of her arms while Mrs.
Mullmll pounded her. She fainted before
her husband came to her rescue.
Mrs. Shinrook's story was also full of
alleged indignities , which she alleged her
family had borne from the Mulhalls. The
grown children of the Mulhalls she
alleged wens in the habit of throwing
brickbats ami the coutonts of swill paili
upon her children when they were in
